Relatives seek to ID crash victims

August 22, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Grieving relatives tried to identify bodies from the wreckage of a Spanish jet that crashed at Madrid's airport on its second attempt at takeoff after mechanical problems.

Airline officials declined to comment on possible causes for Wednesday's crash, in which 153 people were killed, but said Spanair Flight JK5022 had earlier been delayed due to a problem with the air intake heating system before it attempted a second takeoff for its flight to Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
